Congratulations are in order for actress Gal Gadot and her husband Yaron Versano, who have revealed they are expecting their second child.
The couple, who married in 2008, shared the happy news Sunday on Instagram with a pretty stunning black and white photo captioned with the hashtag “#mommyforthesecondtime.”
Gadot and her husband are already parents to 4-year-old daughter Alma Versano. Earlier this year, Gadot told Ellen DeGeneres how proud she is to play strong role models in the hope that her young daughter will be inspired by her choices.
Gadot told DeGeneres that Alma has told her she likes to play with princes instead of princesses because “They always fall asleep and the prince is the one to wake them up and they do nothing,” which is why Gadot feels like “the luckiest girl in the world” to play Wonder Woman and give her daughter a female role model.
She also revealed that even superheroes carry a certain amount of mom guilt. “I worry that I should always be doing more and spend more time with Alma even when I’m working. I try to do the best I can,” she said.
She admitted that her husband helped her to put her feelings of guilt into perspective, saying “Gal, think about what kind of a role model you want to be. If you want to show Alma that she can follow her dreams, that’s what you should do, and we will figure out the logistics.”
Despite the guilt, being a mom is Gadot’s greatest accomplishment: “I’m very happy being a mother, and as soon as you begin raising your child, you feel this incredible love and happiness that is different from anything else you’ve ever experienced.”
